One of Mt Juliet’s most anticipated events returns Friday, April 11.

The Mt Juliet Breakfast Rotary Club will host the third annual Taste of Mt Juliet, offering tastes of food from approximately 30 restaurants and eateries, including many of Mt Juliet’s newest.

The Taste of Mt Juliet has become more than a place to sample a wide variety of fine food, it has become known as a community reunion.  As many commented last year, “You see everybody you know”.

The event will once again be held at Mt Juliet High school. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. and activities will continue until 8 p.m.

Tickets may be purchased from any Mt Juliet Breakfast Rotary Club member or by contacting Chuck Groover at 773-5200. Adult tickets are $20, senior adults (65+) $15, family ticket $54 (up to five family members), children 12 and under $5.

Proceeds from the event will fund Mt Juliet Breakfast Rotary Club projects in the community.

Come eat, drink and be charitable.

Teachers of the Year: MJCA's Kathy Posey and West's Jennifer Terhune
Tuesday, April 1, 2014

We take a look at two more Teachers of the Year this week. First, we have Mt. Juliet Christian Academy’s Kathy Posey, and then West’s Jennifer Terhune. 

Posey has been on the Mt. Juliet Christian Academy, First Baptist Church of Mt. Juliet campus since 1993 in some capacity, whether it be as a teacher or in the children’s ministry. 

Now, she is teaching a kindergarten/first grade split because enrollment at the school went way up in recent years. 

“They’re excited, they love learning,” said Posey of her kindergarteners and first graders. “I love seeing that light bulb go off when they learn to read.”

Posey has been at MJCA so long because she absolutely loves it. It allows her to talk about Jesus Christ with her students all day, and the people there are like family. 

“It’s like home,” she said. 

Posey was surprised when she was chosen by her peers as Teacher of the Year. 

“There are so many teachers it could have gone to,” said Posey. “I was excited. I was shocked.”

West Elementary’s Teacher of the Year is Jennifer Terhune. 

Terhune has been the music teacher at West for 23 years. 

“This is a fabulous school, very family oriented, awesome principals, great kids,” said Terhune.

Terhune said she loves her job, and can’t think of anywhere else she would rather be than teaching kids music. 

“I can’t imagine a job that would be more fun,” said Terhune. 

Terhune said that any teacher at West could have won Teacher of the Year, so it meant a lot to her be chosen. 

“I’m very glad they appreciate the work I do with their students,” said Terhune. 

Both teachers will be up for Wilson County Teacher of the Year. That will be announced at a banquet at Cumberland University April 11. The event is sponsored by Cedar Stone Bank and Wilson County Motors.
